Originally released on cassette in 1997. Remastered for net-release. Mixed from prepared tapes in 1997, man-hours was essentially a rumination on work and play, free time and controlled time, conceived rather joyfully during a period of employment frustration. Made up of two pieces, filling the two sides of the original tape release, one side mixed tapes of musical sketches / band jams into a blurry, bubbling sound concoction... like wandering through a maze of underground tunnels trying to...
Originally released on cassette in 1998. Remastered for net release. In 1998, I started reworking some old 4-track recordings that had been collecting dust, having gone unreleased through my home-run recording label Vuzh Music. These recordings are a collection of material from several projects that were either never completed, temporarily shelved, or simply abandoned for whatever reason. Some tracks were oddballs that didn't fit in thematically or musically with anything I had planned to...
Originally released in 1996 on cassette via AudioFile Tapes. Remixed / remastered in 2009 for net release on Vuzh Music. Artist statement: The subtitle of this record was "a Diary of Tentative Ambient Drafts". While I don't think that much of the music presented here is ambient in the accepted modern sense, and although I wouldn't call this music ambient today, it is clearly a music of patience. Its whole point was to slowly explore a sound space that to me sounded quiet and calming.... Topics: experimental, diy, drone, lofi
C. Reider (of Vuzh Music & Drone Forest) and Treetrunk Records present "Inconstant". Artist Statement: "I believe the Constant series is one of the most important things going on today among drone / ambient / experimental musicians in the underground, because it amounts to a conversation, a dialogue... each person saying 'Look here's what I think a drone can sound like', and then there are responses to that, and responses to that. "Inconstant" is a subtractive remix... ( 1 reviews ) Topics: ambient, abstract, longform
A while back, Frans de Waard said in a review of my music published in his Vital Weekly that, perhaps he had been "clouded by ill-judgement" in that he had been under the impression that I was just "one of the drone boys". I was a little amused by this because, aside from my association with Drone Forest, I had (up until that time) never actually put out much music under my name that could really be categorized as pure drone music. Drones have been an important touchstone in... Topics: experimental, drone, noise, minimal, electronic, C.Reider
"As with my previous release 'Aughtet', this recording utilizes the human voice as a sound source. For 'Linguism' I have taken some recordings of the famous linguist Noam Chomsky speaking, and edited them to remove the content-laden part of the speech, instead accenting speech disfluencies such as stuttering, spaces between phrases and filler: Filler (linguistics) at the Wikipedia ." - C. Reider Treetrunk welcomes another cool and daring release by C. Reider. Topics: experimental, ambient, soundscape
Eg0cide welcomes well known sound activist C. Reider (founder of Vuzh Music netlabel and experimental band Drone Forest), who sent us a very interesting "process-music" album based on the use of 4 sounds he found irritating. The result of these sound studies will make you discover the hidden musical potential of what most of us usually hate to hear. Topics: experimental, process-music, noise, ambient noise, C. Reider, eg0cide, drone
C Reider, the man behind Vuzh and the man behind the ‘Electret Quintet’ series has certainly taken a different direction with this single track release.

"Beyond Numb" is a sort of parody of the techno dance genre. The track, by Mystified, originally appeared on the 2007 Dim Records CDr, "Soothgrains". Mystified has been asking for remixes of the track, and received some excellent mixes from artists C. Reider and Full On. Mystified proceeded to remix his own track several more times, and what came of it all was over 42 minutes of very cool and eclectic takes on the track "Beyond Numb", including the original.

The anonymous collective from Antarctica, Digital Mass, were very impressed with C. Reider's creation, "Buddha Reduction". The collective wanted to create a remix of Reider's work, and this is the track they concocted. All sounds come from Reider's original (and excellent) pieces.
